Pig pens/houses because a little girl with golden hair has been hearing of the three little piggies and we had to build houses that would be safe from the big bad wolf.
I found it quite fitting that my #goodreads quote of the day for today is this one by #ArthurSchopenhauer “Compassion is the basis of morality.” Words of truth.
Reza, you live on.
Reza, I’m sorry this happened.
Reza, your family and friends I’m so very sorry that the government of my country failed you.
Reza, I’m sorry that you were only 23.
Reza, I’m sorry that you will never set your feet on Australian soil.
Reza, I’m sorry that you will never run red dirt through your fingers or wiggle your toes in white sand.
Reza, I’m sorry that my government plays politics with the fear.
Reza, I’m sorry that my country continues to ignore the very basic truths of the UN Refugee convention.
Reza, I’m sorry that my government and my country continued to dehumanise up until the last breath you took.
Reza, I only hope that this at last is the wake up call that that my country needs that we need to stop allowing our government and our fellow Australians that playing politics with the lives of vulnerable people is not ok.

I struggle on what to call this room, if I’m speaking to family it is typically called Karl or Matthew’s old room as they used to live in it.
For me though is part guest bedroom, part study, part home office, part creating space, part second wardrobe.
When the house got re-painted I didn’t put the curtain rails back up. As it is no longer a bedroom it no longer needed block out curtains.
Instead I left the windows bare and let the light shine on in. If I needed curtains I would bulldog clip fabric to the window frames.
A trip to Ikea the other month I finally picked up some more Dignitet curtain wire and put it up.
A old sari that I picked up from a stall at the Woodford Folk Festival many moons ago serves as the curtain on the long side of the room and a length of green fabric is the curtain for the shorter side.
They dance quite perfectly in the breeze and run up and down the curtain wire when the wind gets up.
A very lovely and overdue addition to the room.
My plan for 1 photo and post every Sunday on a moment from that day.
Bread I baked, Tomatoes I grew.
Tommy Toe tomatoes from my garden on grilled beer bread that I make once a week as a “sandwich/breakfast toast” loaf.
Very, very, very yummy.
